China on Saturday successfully reignited a 130-metric ton, heavy-thrust liquid-propellant engine, which will be tasked with lifting the country's reusable carrier rockets now under development.

During the test, which took place in Xi'an, Shaanxi Province, the new reusable engine was ignited twice and worked well according to the Academy of Aerospace Propulsion Technology in Xi'an, a subsidiary of China Aerospace Science and Technology Corp.

It will be used on China's reusable spacecraft, and will be key to maintaining the nation's space station. It will also allow for large-scale, low-cost space transportation.
